Friday 15 May marks the official end of Wycombe High School for Year 13. Traditionally they would have had a ‘Dress Up Day’, an assembly, a BBQ, Bouncy Castle and Games.

Whilst sadly #lockdown prevented this, I am delighted that Mrs Ellis, Head of Sixth Form, was able to recreate ‘virtually’ as many aspects of this day as possible. The theme for ‘Dress Up Day’ was ‘the noughties’ and it was great to see so many Year 13s participate alongside staff, making some very special memories. If you check @WycombeHighSch Twitter you will see some amazing outfits.  A highlight has to be the very entertaining ‘LittleWycombe’ sketch by Mrs Ellis and her team. This poem shared by Mrs Ellis with Year 13 seems fitting for us all:

‘This is my wish for you: 
Comfort on difficult days, 
smiles when sadness intrudes, 
rainbows to follow the clouds, 
laughter to kiss your lips,
sunsets to warm your heart, 
hugs when spirit sag, 
beauty your eyes to see, 
friendships to brighten your being, 
faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt,
courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life’ 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have a wonderful weekend. Stay Alert, Control the Virus and Save Lives.
